TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The diplomatic team will meet with US congressmen as well as Foreign Ministry’s authorities on Thursday and Friday probably in White House.
The European team’s purpose of the meeting is to protect Iran’s nuclear deal (also known as JCPOA) against Donald Trump’s hostile measures to cancel or renegotiate the deal.
Despite that fact that Trump has time and again referred to JCPOA as “the worst deal” ever singed in the US history, UN as well as Trump’s national security advisors and his European allies have acknowledged Iran’s commitment to the international deal.
In October, Trump claimed that Iran has not act in accordance with the “soul” of the deal and asked the Congress bend the US laws for taking tougher measures against Iran’s non-nuclear activities.
The European countries are worry that Iran leave the deal if US take more strict measures against Iran.
Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China – plus Germany signed the nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015 and started implementing it on January 16, 2016.
Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.
